Source: SBD>MC>DAT>CDR>WAV>SHN - entire first set except for aud splice during LLR. First three tracks of second set are SBD with the remainder from an unlineaged FOB audience recording.
Love this show! The playing reprise is short but so sweet! Plus the drums and space are all top notch.
Good mix, can hear the small audience just enough, Phil was so ON during this period

Was present for the opening weekend of this run of shows. Loved the Cold Rain and Snow opener on Sunday and the set was rolling along. 2nd set Terrapin>Playin>China Doll>Jam just outstanding. Yes Jerry's vocals had seen their better days but just listen to the music my friends. Wish I had ditched work for the entire week for these shows.

After listening on the archive for many years I feel like I have found the most satisfying show to date. From the playing to the recording and finally to hearing the audience all around me it's a thrill ride beginning to end! The only thing missing is the LSD.
but beings that I'm driving a big rig I really should stay sober. Enjoy the show!!!

Great sound here..The boys were haven fun in this intimate setting. Taping was officially OK'd during this run. I love this little stint and the playing was pretty tight with a flaw or two..who fucking cares! I don't seek perfection..I seek the sound. Always fun in Berkeley and this show does not disappoint..so please.GIVE IT A WHIRL.Forever>Grateful>Forever Dead…LIFER@!@!@!@!@!

Love the nonsense of ragging on others on this website, We all have our thoughts on any giving show. So who is to say who is rite or wrong? I wont names but I think the person might get the jest of who am speaking of. These shows were the balls, POWERFULL B C T run in 84. I like these shows here better then the next 2 years they played there.
I too was at each and everyone of these shows, but that doesn't make me an expert on sound or performance. The ones who taped these shows sure know there stuff. I give it 5 stars because of the sound and trippyness " ya I know it's not a real word " Rock on DARK SIDE you hit it rite on the nose.
Silly hippy drippy nonsense below aside, this was a great run, was at all 6, and this was my favorite after 11/2. This is a very underrated show. Great year, '84 and '85 were fantastic years on tour then the stadium bs started in '86 then dylan covers and in the dark and nitrous and touch heads and it was all over. I had a good rode from '72-'85 so I won't complain, even saw some real good shows after '85 the crowd was just horrible at that point. Check out all of these BCT shows.

fantastic show, not a bad song in it. Terrapin>Jam is truely amazing give it a listen. very powerful show all around. As for the sound quality, the soundboard is great, as is the FOB, really it took me a some time to notice the source had changed, and theres no jarring cuts.
Finally as for jerry man he is on, voice aside of course but its not too bad i suppose.
